We went for a day trip to get out of the city for a a bit. Lots of trails to choose from, really nice views of the Hollywood sign and the city of Los Angeles. Accessible by foot from our motel in Hollywood.

If you go to LA, you have to go to Griffith Park and the observatory. On a clear day you've got amazing visibility and can see all of LA County and then some. It's great day in night. Lots of see, you can walk home picnic. Definitely worth a visit. As an LA native I've been here many times and... More

Did not have much time here but saw a lot. I would love to go back. There were people everywhere. This park has golf, a merry-go-round, trains, and lots of trails. I learned that at the edge of Burbank there is a large horse area. There are large stables and an equestrian center. Everywhere we rode we saw lots of... More

Griffith Park, I PROMISE YOU, is far more than just a way to get to the Hollywood sign or Griffith observatory. There are hundreds of trails that run throughout the park, a ton of different places to start, and views of LA (city and valley side) that will knock your socks off. If you're hiking, try the Wisdom Tree Hike.... More

Had the chance to visit on a cool clear day. Terrific views of the city and of the area. Make sure you aren't in heels or dress shoes!

What an awesome place! We went to hike up to Mt Hollywood, and we were not disappointed. The hike itself was very beautiful, and the views at the top were spectacular. The place is quite popular, though, so plan to arrive very early or fight for parking.

This is a magnificent park that most Angelenos rarely visit. Great vistas, wonderful picnic areas, fun horseback riding as well as hiking trails run throughout. If you haven't been to Griffith Park then you haven't been to LA

Park is refreshing green space in the middle of crazy traffic. Lots of parking, but be prepared to drive around to find it as the park is busy. Great walking paths. Good for families or couples. Great pictures abound. Keep going up the hill to the Observatory.
